30th Anniversary...Sept. 1

To celebrate this great event, Rick and the girls surprised me with a weekend trip to the first Auburn game of the season. That might seem strange to some, not the traditional gold, silver, or even diamonds, but we met and married in Auburn....Rick was actually my boss at the Foy Student Union Building. As it turns out all our dear friends and family were in on the planning of the tailgate and the Auburn Tigers even managed to win their opening season game!

We had a blast and are so grateful to everyone who had a part in the event! Rick's brother, Russ and his daughter, Kaitlin drove in from Atlanta. My sister, her husband, Bill and her son, Rob took a day off and made the trip from Birmingham. My best friend from high school and "realtor extraordinaire", Lucretia, her husband Dwight, AND her children and grandchildren all came from Millbrook to celebrate the day. Grandmother, Drew, Robin and Mike opened their beautiful homes to all of us and put on a fantastic tailgate spread with plenty of hot wings and cold beverages. Thanks to Christy digging through boxes in the basement, the tables were decorated with ancient pictures of married bliss and Sandi even had a slide show of some of our most memorable moments.
Thank you everyone for being a part of our celebration and part of our life!
